The European Commission has proposed new measures to tackle disinformation and so-called ‘fake news’ online, including an EU-wide code of practice on disinformation and support for an “independent fact-checking network.”
“Soros-funded independent fact-checkers” is a contradiction in terms.
These leftist ideologues are rapidly disappearing up their own rear ends in their pathetic efforts to silence opposition to their nasty schemes.
What is a billionaire investor and business magnate doing in Brussels ? Why is he getting a reception with politicians ? No one elected Soros.
It has nothing to do with stopping ‘fake news’, it is about ensuring that only government approved fake news is disseminated.
The true fake news is not bigoted, partisan or propaganda driven views screamed out on social media. The real purveyors of fake news are the MSM where they only include facts that support their prejudice (or lately government propaganda), where they report press releases as investigated and researched when they are not, where they report opinion as fact, where they extrapolate from rumour and innuendo to declared fact, where they take unwarranted assumption as fact, where they construct an argument not between for and against but between for and for with reservations or against and against with reservations and declare it unbiased (the BBC reigns supreme in this tactic).
Who decides what is fake news and what isn’t fake news?
So the Internet has led to a place simply to further business interests and only be a platform for outlets they allow in order to pursue and consolidate their unstated agendas leaving the powerful few with absolute control.
No doubt these new Soros funded fact checkers will be advertised in the Guardian jobs section and heralded from the BBC rooftop.
